Key findings, inspector’s opinions and reasons for judgement made

The inspectors reviewed a range of topics and identified a number of examples of the dutyholder meeting relevant good practice in reducing risk to levels that are as low as reasonably practicable, including Management Systems, development and implementation of Local Rules, the appointment and availability of Radiation Protection Advisors and Dangerous Goods Safety Advisors, and the Training and Competence of employees.


The inspectors identified several elements of good practice where the dutyholder had met the requirements of the Carriage of Dangerous Goods and Use of Transportable Pressure Equipment Regulations 2009 and The Ionising Radiations Regulations 2017.

The inspectors found shortfalls relating to the radiation risk assessment.

A regulatory issue has been raised to track and manage these shortfalls towards resolution.
